Help shape our future. When you make a planned gift to Habitat of the Greater La Crosse Region in your estate or long-term financial plans, you help ensure that we'll be here—committed to safe and affordable homeownership—for many years to come.
You can include us in your estate planning with a cash bequest of a specified amount, as a recipient of all or a percentage of the remainder of your estate after the payment of any cash bequests and all estate-related expenses, or as a beneficiary of the remainder of your IRA, Keogh, tax-sheltered annuity, qualified pension, or profit-sharing plan.
With all charitable gifts, it is important to consult with your attorney or financial advisor to ensure that you comply with state laws, receive maximum tax benefits, and that your wishes are accurately reflected in necessary legal documents. Your planned gift to Habitat will create a lasting impact through the safety and stability of affordable homeownership.
Once you have made your legacy gift, please let us know. We would like the opportunity to thank you personally.

You can donate an old vehicle, boat, RV, or motorcycle—running or not—to Habitat for Humanity of the Greater La Crosse Region to help support local families. The donation process is quick and easy, and it's just one more way you can support our work. Plus, your donation may be tax deductible. When you donate a car, truck, boat or RV through Habitat’s Cars for Homes™ program, Habitat of the Greater La Crosse Region receives 100% of the net proceeds of your vehicle donation to help families build and renovate decent, affordable homes right here in our local community.
The process is quick and easy through Habitat for Humanity's official vehicle donation program. You can accomplish it online at Cars for Homes or with a toll-free phone call to 1-877-277-4344. If you donate an automobile or other vehicle, you may be eligible for a tax deduction.
One of the easiest ways to support Habitat is through workplace giving. Some companies will even match your donation to increase the impact of your generosity.
Many private employers, and federal, state, and local governments offer payroll deductions to employees. Payroll deduction is an employer-sponsored program that lets you support Habitat’s mission with a tax-deductible donation given directly from your paycheck. Payroll deduction is one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to give, but there may be other options available.
Does your employer match charitable contributions made by employees? Many do! With a matching gift, your donation to Habitat might be doubled or even tripled in value. Gifts of stock are also eligible– just like any cash or credit card donation. This kind of employer match maximizes the impact you can have, making your donation go even further.
Ask your human resources department today about what opportunities you have for workplace giving.
“I took a chance to try and change my boys' life. They deserve to have a place to call their own, that will remain theirs. And most importantly a chance at feeling what it is like to just have a home. Something we all never thought we would experience.”
